Diversity & Inclusion
Diversity and Inclusion is integral to our success.
As talent acquisition is at the heart of our activity, we want to inspire our clients to understand the value of a diverse workforce. We believe that change comes from within and we want our employees to be confident that they are valued not only for their skills, but also for what they are bringing to the company as individuals.
We value the diversity of people’s backgrounds, ethnicities, gender, orientation, cognitive and physical abilities, because we know that the combination of people’s personal life experiences will contribute to the success of our company and support the day to day activity.
We understand that this diversity of profiles might create different needs. Therefore, we provide flexible work opportunities to employees wherever possible.
Our employees taking action:
Our Diversity & Inclusion Board, sponsored by our CEO, brings together people from a variety of backgrounds to ensure we continue to improve our diversity and inclusion programmes. We also maintain a network of employee-led groups who are tasked to address specific areas of diversity
These groups are leading internal and external actions to support the following areas: Social Mobility, Gender balance, Ethnicity, Disability, Cognitive diversity, LGBTQ+ and Wellness.
We also have a group dedicated to ensuring that we honour our commitment towards the Armed Forces Covenant, signed in 2016.
Our employees’ skills, talent and time are also leveraged to empower charities, organisations and individuals to do more with what they have to beneﬁt our communities.
We are working together with third parties to support our actions and commit to causes aligned with our values.
The Girls network mission is to inspire and empower girls from the least advantaged communities by connecting them with a mentor and a network of professional female role models.
In 2020, mentors at Alexander Mann Solutions will be supporting 15 girls aged 14-19 across the UK through the transformational 12 months Mentoring Programme.
